Unfortunately was not open when we arrived. Only open from 1630 to 2030. Amazing life sized sculptures in the garden for the stations of the cross. Beautiful mosaics surrounding the sacred waters. Sparkling clean public toilets by the gift shop in the parking lot.

It takes an hour to truly appreciate the antiquity and story of this lovely place. Statues and gardens with stunning mosaics and so worth the visit! Very inspiring place!

In the old section of Guilianova you will find the beautiful Santuary of the Modonna of Splendora. Renowned for her healing waters. The church is a master piece and the mosaic tile stations of the cross are amazing. Don't miss seeing this gorgeous place you will be humbled by it holiness.

Unfortunately the Church was closed when we visited so best to check opening times. It was still worth the visit just to see the surrounding area. People go just to drink the "holy" water, this area opens early morning until late at night. The outside walls of the Sanctuary are covered with spectacular pictures in mosaic.

Our Family in Giulianova took us to this lovely church. We walked the grounds. There are a lot of steps to see the Stations of the Cross. We put our feet into the pool of Blessed water. We were told it has healing powers. The views are breathtaking. They overlook the city below out to the sea. You will see... More

We went here with family that live in Giulianova. It was so beautiful. It is set very high up so it has wonderful views. We walked around the area and it was amazing. My cousin told me the story of 2 farmers who were working on the land and Mary appeared to them. That is why this building is here... More

We visited this church because my husband's father had been baptised there. It is not possible to visit the old church anymore but the new church is open to the public. The miraculous well, olive plaza and wedding couples all made the visit very interesting.
